Had time to kill in Bristol, so I toddled off to see the museum and gallery. Was pleasantly surprised to find it to be well suited for both me and the kids.

My 4 year old nephew and I spent the day here today and we loved every second! The staff are SO lovely and helpful! We got lost several times and they were always there to explain something or point us in the right direction. The cafe is a lot cheaper than I remembered also, once again the staff were very helpful
